My Approach to Helping

Our relationships are our most important asset. And when something feels off it can be excruciating. Through utilizing the latest research in the fields of attachment, neuroscience, and communication we can collaborate to get things back on track. You will learn some new skills in conflict management—even if you are conflict avoidant! And we will get some psychobiological hacks on board quickly which can result in fewer arguments and a greater sense of connection. Many busy couples today are craving a more fulfilling partnership truly sharing the mental and emotional load. And often our intimate lives get neglected and we’ve no idea how to get it back. Whatever challenges you are experiencing I will meet you with a warm and gentle approach to help you rekindle the love and connection that you are longing for. Together you can forge a path forward and create a fulfilling and fun relationship!

More Info About My Practice

I believe our primary relationships impact us on a deep and lasting level and therefore the health of these relationships is vital to our well-being. Every joy and tragedy of our lives are played out on the stage of our intimate relationships. When couples are strong and healthy there is a ripple effect on the rest of the family, community, and the world. I view the work that my clients and I do together as vital to creating the kind of world we all want to live in--one characterized by more skillful loving, increased connection and less conflict.

I also specialize in premarital or precommitment counseling. My approach is fun and interactive helping you have essential conversations to start your journey together well equipped. Please see my website for further info.
